I had no choice but to purchase a new computer system after the hard drive to my old was completely wiped out. I had been planning a purchase, but not for a few months yet, so while I had done some research, all I really knew for sure was that I wanted a Dell.
The Dell Inspiron 530S was on sale at Best Buy with a great package deal for $699.99 - that included a beautiful 19" flat screen monitor and a 3 in 1 printer system. The system has 4GB of memory and a 2.53 ghz intel core duo processor. It comes preloaded with Vista home premium, a 30 day free trial of Norton security and Microsoft Works, which I was so happy to get back, as I prefer that to the Word my previous computer had.
Though I have had my new Dell less than a week, I love it. It is SO fast! The tower is slim and can be placed either standing up or laying flat. It is a quiet system that moves quickly. The keyboard is smaller than any other previous keyboard I have used, there is basically no wasted space or plastic surrounding the keys. So far, I have not found a single flaw...I sure hope it stays this way!
